Radioisotope Scanner

Dr. C. Douglas Maynard looks over film images produced by a new radioisotope scanner purchased in 1967 for $51,000 and was operated by nuclear medicine personnel at Bowman Gray School of Medicine and North Carolina Baptist Hospital. The scanner had 10 scanning “eyes” and was able to take a complete series of pictures of a person’s brain within a few minutes which normally would take have taken approximately an hour with older equipment. Dr. Maynard retired in 2000 but was assistant professor of radiology and chief of the nuclear medicine section at the time of this photograph.
